Last modified: May 02, 2022

As part of Auto Insights' analysis, it calculates complex averages that might not be relevant to the business at times. As a dataset owner, you can customize the Key Measures and Segments to ensure only relevant metrics are shown.

First, you need to go to Dataset Settings, and there are 2 ways to do that.

Option 1: Go to the Datasets tab, and select the three-dot icon for the dataset you want to edit. Select Edit settings.

Segment Data Relevancy

Auto Insights uses sophisticated machine learning algorithms to determine factor importance automatically for any datasets. However, you can change the context and understanding of your dataset. To edit segment data relevancy, go to Discover > Edit measures list > Set segments. Select the Measure from the dropdown, then select the segments that are relevant. Select Save.
